A Note from SuperBowl50 Halftime.

Dear Beyonce,

Look into pants.

Also, if you could find a new “dance routine” . . . one which did not resemble, say, my poodle in heat, that would be awfully swell.

Sincerely,

~Decently Demure

Fall 2015 Recital Prep

Music. Had a master class the other week. I had a make-up lesson right before . . . I did fine during the lesson, but the master class performance was not so great. It was nerves.  I had nothing to be nervous about . . . seven, eight people total, simply sitting around a living […]
